Specs: Windows XP Pro
for a few weeks now i have been getting re-directed to ad websites when i open links, it seems to specifically happen when i open links from google but has also happened from other sites. i have pc tools internet security and do regular full scans, have also used eset internet security and regularly run ad-aware and uniblue spyeraser but none of these have been able to fix my problem. last few days have also been getting internet explorer crashes, have upgraded to IE8.0 but this hasnt fixed the problem. was just wondering if anyone could offer any suggestions as it is really starting to bug me now and i really dont want to have to do a clean install due to the amount of programs i have installed and data stored

Well try on using a Registry cleaner as well. Then do a DEFRAG and Check disk on your computer. Also check if the Antivirus and Spy ware remover is fully updated.
